As I was going to St. Ives
I met Suckeir - does he have wives ?
He said that he was planning sacks
To cover up the things he lacks
But every sack was fighting back
And so Suckeir was changing tack
Now everything is just the same
So poor Suckeir must take the blame
Not me - I'm still off to St. Ives
If you are going to the one Cambridgeshire you should be OK. However
God's Worst Railway has found that the DfT specified trains are cracking
up at the jacking points and only 3 have been allowed out to play today.
There are similar but less serious problems on God's North Eastern
Railway and Trans-Pennine.
Someone did ask if the steam reserve could be put into service but
apparently it has been scrapped.
I'm in the fortunate position of not needing to travel anywhere so my
immediate reaction was not about frustrated journeys but "thank
goodness they found the problem when they did."
Railrats will probably tell me that, of course they spotted the
problem because we have the finest inspection programme in the world.
Of course we do, but that means everywhere else has a less good
inspection programme and I can think of plenty of places where the
first anybody would know about the problem would be when the
fatalities started piling up.
